Is there a Northwest Backyard Fruit-Growers Association?
The title kind of says it. I see there is a California Rare Fruit Growers association, and Midwest Backyard Fruit Growers Association, and even a Pennsylvania Backyard Fruit Growers Association.
These all seem to be individual backyard hobbyists, not commercial growers. They communicate and even get together to share information, tips, how-to on grafting and propagation, disease control tips, pruning techniques, and starts of their trees.
Is there such a group of amateur backyard fruit growers in the Northwest? Specifically, Portland/Vancouver Area?
Should there be?
Thanks for information and thoughts, from an amateur backyard fruit grower who sometimes feels like the only one in town!
